Munro Neil The Shoes of Fortune

Neil Munro Bagpipe Ballads and Other Poems. The Collected Poems of


Neil Munro (1863-1930) is well known for his brilliant humorous sketches which celebrate "Para Handy", the wily skipper of the puffer Vital Spark, and his crew. One of the most outstanding journalists of his day, he was also the author of fine historical novels of which "John Splendid" and "The New Road" are most highly acclaimed. Throughout his literary career he also wrote poetry. Not surprisingly, as a young Highlander compelled to move to the city of Glasgow for work, one of the main themes in this genre is exile. With the onset of the Great War in 1914, however, he found his true poetic voice. The devastating loss of his son in France and three visits to the front line as war correspondent galvanised him to write a sequence of sixteen well-crafted poems which he called Bagpipe Ballads. Many of these bring home to us the grim sadness of war and ensure Munro's place with the other notable Scottish war poets of the period. Bob Preston is to be congratulated for bringing together for the first time all of Neil Munro's known verses, for assembling them in chronological order of publication and for providing extensive notes which include the publishing history of each poem.

Neil Munro The Vital Spark


The Vital Spark is a fictional Clyde puffer (small steamboat), created by Scottish writer Neil Munro. As its captain, the redoubtable Para Handy, often says: "the smertest boat in the coastin' tred".Puffers seem to have been regarded fondly even before Munro began publishing his short stories in the Glasgow Evening News in 1905. This may not be surprising, for these small steamboats were then providing a vital supply link around the west coast and Hebrides islands of Scotland. The charming rascality of the stories went well beyond the reality of a commercial shipping business, but they brought widespread fame. They appeared in the newspaper over 20 years, were collected in book form by 1931, inspired the 1953 film The Maggie, and came out as three popular television series, dating from 1959 to 1995.

Neil Munro Doom Castle by Munro, Fiction, Classics, Action & Adventure


CASTLE DOOM!No pomp, no pleasant amenities; the place seemed to jut into the sea, defying man's oldest and most bitter enemy, its gable ends and one crenellated bastion or turret betraying its sinister relation to its age, its whole aspect arrogant and unfriendly, essential of war. Caught suddenly by the vision that swept the fretted curve of the coast, it seemed blackly to perpetuate the spirit of the land, its silence, its solitude and terrors.This was the Count Victor's fist sight of Castle Doom. His mission to Scotland from France in 1755 brought him into this wild land of danger and mystery, where he met the haunting Count Doom, the lovely Olivia, the dastardly Simon MacTaggart -- and gothic jeopardy armed with claymores, dirks, and bagpipes.

Neil Munro The Clyde. River and Firth


For this, one of a series of illustrated volumes, first published in 1907, Neil Munro (1863-1930) was surely the ideal choice of author with his versatility as historical novelist and journalist. Born and bred in Inveraray, he spent years on the Glasgow Evening News, contributing two well-loved columns that envious colleagues would describe as having "the Munro touch". Para Handy made his first casual appearance in those pages. This book is a rich storehouse of facts geographical and historical, but it too shows "the Munro touch". We feel his joie de vivre and his innate love of his own corner of the world as he accompanies us from the river's source at Little Clyde Farm, past the orchards near Lanark, the shipyards of Glasgow, down to the Firth itself in its "doon the watter" heyday, ending with chapters on Loch Fyne and the islands.With sixty-seven black-and-white illustrations.
